Recommendations for hairdressers who work from home in Canberra?

By 29 October 2012 18

I’m returning to Canberra soon after three years away. Here in Ocean Grove there are several hairdressers who work from home. You get fantastic service as there’s one-on-one attention, no problems with parking, privacy, and very reasonable prices.

I did a search on hairdressers before I posted this but only found recommendations for general hairdressers. Could anyone recommend a good hairdresser who works from home, particularly in the Gungahlin area? Thank you!

There might be a few who build their business based on referrals, but you’d come across them that way, and not out of the yellow pages.. I can think of two I know personally.. but I don’t know you, so I’m not inclined to give out their home address over the internet..

Hope it helps, i know the issue of not wanting to pay Three Hundred Dollars just to get a hair cut every 3 months.

sounds like a tax investigator ….

anyway as previously mentioned – they generally only take on personal referrals.

Why not give your money to someone who is actively looking for new customers, there are plenty of good hairdressers in the gungahlin area. Alternatively to answer the privacy etc concerns you could have a mobile hairdresser come to you.

Remember to check that they have their Public Health Risk Activity Licence. Its illegal for them to be selling hairdressing services without it. If they don’t they probably don’t have have public liability insurance for if anything terrible happened to you. Dodgy business practicises usually go hand in hand with dodgy hairdressing services!!

As an Amaroo resident my family has found the reliable services of a nearby home based hairdresser whom I can recommend. Rather than posting their details here, i would happily pass on details to them via email if you send your details to tony_ozanne@yahoo.com

I so agree!

Not sure about the creepy remark…what the? My question is entirely innocent. As I said, I been to two very good hairdressers who work from home here in Ocean Grove, and I thought there must be some in Canberra too, given the bigger population.

Sorry, I hadn’t thought about the privacy aspect when I posted the question. But what’s the difference between someone listing their business name on Gumtree or elsewhere, and finding a positive recommendation on here, with a mobile number?

Thank you for the comment re the Public Health Risk Activity Licence. It’s not something I’ve thought of!

And Dancing Djin (great name, btw)…yes I’d seen the mobile hairdresser thread, but I’ve had a terrible cut from someone who came to my home. When you go to their setup, it’s like a mini salon with basins, dryers, all equipment. You don’t have that at your own place.

Thanks SmallfishTony, I’ll be in touch. That’s very helpful of you.

Nah he’s stepped up in the world coz since 2010 he’s been a property agent with Ubertas Group, responsible for selling apartments in a St Kilda Road 50-storey complex, with a focus on international buyers.So the only person’s hair he’ll be running his hands through is a certain redhead!

i believe they’re having some renos done so they may be in a govvie flat nearby, or maybe by the water in sinney, opposite the sails themed building (i think it has opera there sometimes…); or have they decamped to a cramped little joint in one of those park-something suburbs in adelaide?

I would also be careful about insurance issues. Often cheaper hairdressing comes at a price and if something were to happen, and the person wasnt insured you would be left in the cold.
Having someone come to your home you dont know also carries a risk.
I know hairdressers who are salon based, insured and professional who will visit peoples homes if you are disabled and unable to leave the home for some reason, but they charge salon rates. Usually not a surcharge for travel if you are in the canberra area.

I love all these “what about insurance if something went wrong” comments.

Last time something went wrong with a haircut was at Tony and Guy after a fantastic photo shoot. The hair looked great at the shoot and terrible after.

It cost to get it fixed at a model/actress specialist but where was the insurance supposed to come into it? Do you people actually launch legal action in response to a bad haircut?
